Hazards Analysis. When required, the designer may be responsible
for preparing an analysis to define areas that may be hazardous to personnel
and material, on the basis of presently accepted safe radiation limits.  This
analysis may be performed by combining theoretical "worst-case" calculations
and onsite measurements of EMR power densities.  For the purposes of
analysis, the major source of hazardous electromagnetic energy is considered
to be the antennas associated with radar and communication equipment of both
low- and high- power emissions.  The analysis shall be in accordance with
NAVELEX 0101,106, Electromagnetic Compatibility and Electromagnetic Radiation
Hazards. Other hazards analyses, where appropriate, must be conducted for
other sources of radiation (laser, x-rays), and for compliance with the OSHA
standards, 29CFR1910 and standards set forth in OPNAVINST 5100.23B, Navy
Occupational Safety and Health Program Manual, and NAVELEX 0101.110A.  All
personnel work stations shall be ergonomically designed.
Laser Safety. Laser Safety criteria are defined in NAVELEXINST
5100.12, Navy Laser Hazards Prevention Program and NAVMEDCOMINST 6470.2, Laser
Radiation Health Hazards.  All laser facilities shall incorporate the
requirements of MIL-STD-1425.  Laser installations and fiber optics
installations shall be so designed that personnel (including maintenance
personnel) will never view radiation levels in excess of those specified by
Ionizing Radiation Safety.  Ionizing radiation safety criteria such
as that for X-rays are defined in NAVMED P-5055, Radiation Health Protection
Manual and NAVSEA OP3565/NAVAIR 16-1-529/NAVELEX 0967-LP-624-6010.
